Falcons sweep Kitsap in West Coast League action

The Kelowna Falcons completed the clean sweep of the visiting Kitsap Bluejackets in West Coast League play on Tuesday night with a 5-2 victory.

Once again the offence was impressive pounding 10 hits and two more doubles at Elks Stadium.

Over the course of the series the Falcons would record 11 doubles in total.

Kyle Pearson would lead the way compiling three hits and two more RBIs.  Greg Friesen in his first game back in Kelowna scored a run and finished 2-3, while Kyle Moses was 2-4 with a run scored.

Cale Coshow picked up his first win of the summer throwing five innings, giving up two runs on six hits and struck out two.  He would turn the ball over to Phil Maton who was untouchable out of the pen through 3.2 innings, striking out four.

Juan Padilla recorded his first save of the year striking out the only batter he faced in the top of the ninth.

With the sweep the Falcons raise their record to 3-2 and will welcome the Cowlitz Black Bears to town for a three-game series beginning on Wednesday night.  Gates open at 5:30 p.m., first pitch at 6:35 p.m.

Lefty Tyler Hoelzen, who faced the Black Bears last week, will get the start. In his outing last week he threw 5.2 innings, giving up just a single run on three hits.
